Join us for the AFWA Annual Holiday Charity Dinner!

Purpose of the AFWA Dinner:

Every year, the AFWA Buffalo Chapter hosts a Charity Dinner to raise money for a local women’s charity. The past four years, we raised between $1,500-3,500 for Dress for Success (2014), Hope for Two (2015), Gerard Place (2016), and Haven House (2017)!  

This year, we are proud to support the Child Advocacy Center!  The mission of the Child Advocacy Center is to integrate and coordinate services to meet the needs of child victims of sexual and serious physical abuse and their families at a single, child friendly facility. Such response is intended to reduce trauma, promote accountability and facilitate healing. A combination of funds from Child and Adolescent Treatment Services, the federal and state government, and private sources including the United Way of Buffalo and Erie County enabled the CAC to open in 1994. The CAC was one of the first two CACs to open in New York State and served as a model for many developing centers including Canadian CACs.  Thank you for supporting the CAC!!

Night of the Dinner:

At the Charity Dinner, we will have a Basket Raffle, Networking, and the opportunity to donate to a great cause during the Holiday Season.  The event will start at 6pm, which will give you plenty of time to socialize and strategize on which of the amazing baskets you would like to put your tickets into for a chance to win!  There will be plenty of appetizers and Dinner will be served at 6:45pm with a quick presentation from the Charity.  If you would also like to bring items to donate, the CAC would love:

  • Small, Throw Fleece Blankets (not bedding)
  • Play-dough
  • Coloring books and/or Colored pencils
  • Comfort items for teens like journals and earbuds



There will be free valet parking for the event!

Bar, Baskets, and Raffles:

There will be a cash bar and plenty of Baskets and Raffles, so please bring cash or checks, if you would like to participate!

This event is open to everyone - Please invite spouses, family, and friends – the more the merrier!

Please Consider a Basket Donation:

Please consider donating a basket or soliciting a basket donation from companies, family, friends, or colleagues.  In addition to any profits earned from the dinner, the gift baskets help us donate even more to this great cause!

If you are interested in making a difference by means of a monetary donation or auction item, please contact Liz Bidjov.  The Buffalo Chapter of the Accounting and Financial Women’s Alliance appreciates all that you can do to help make this year’s event even more successful.
